sorry if these are stupid questions, I'm use to parking right in the park (like the badlands) and unloading. guess I can call them tomorrow and ask as well.

you can camp right at R@V there will be a few people staying there.

you will have to run off your generator an there's no water hook up. but it's a nice size camp ground so you will have lots of room.

I think the campgrounds to the north will both be closed in November. (Wilson State park doesn't stay open late into the year) If you have a genny, stay at R&V.

As of right now, I am only coming for Saturday.

Your more than welcome to stay at are park, yes on generator.
By staying at park you'll be able to get in, on everything going on. Plus have your rig right there.
I'll be more than happy to show you the park.

Your coming on a good date. This event is something you'll always remember. A lot of fun & great bounch of people.

The trail maps for R&V need to be updated we made it through regardless.
I don't think Sidewinder was on the map along with a few others.
Ron keeps cutting in trails, which is awesome.

Stump Hill was freshly groomed this past Saturday. Made it fun at the top.
